Want a Great DIY Oily Skin MaskOatmeal Ingredient for Mask
Oatmeal is one of the ingredients that helps deal with excess skin oil while doing it gently.


If you have an oily complexion and want to try a mask/scrub you can make in your own kitchen, then I have a wonderful recipe you should try. This DIY  Oily Skin Mask really helps improve that frustrating oil control problem while saving you money at the same time!

To prepare this easy homemade fix requires just two ingredients and hot water.   What you do to make this DIY Oily Skin Mask is mix equal portions of cornmeal and regular oatmeal (not instant) with hot water to make a paste.  Apply this to your freshly washed face.  Leave this mixture on for at least ten minutes and remain hidden from public view.

Wet your fingers when the time to remove the mask/scrub is up and work the mixture over your face like a scrub, using more water if needed, to exfoliate as well.  Rinse with cold water to close your pores.

Do use this DIY Oily Skin Mask treatment no more than twice a week.  This does help clear up the oil better than a lot of commercial products that I have used.  Do try this easy inexpensive recipe and see a difference in your skin!

    Hi!I forgot to mention if you want just to use this as a mask and not exfoliate, then just use the oatmeal. Mix a thick paste and let it dry the same way on your clean skin. Thanks for writing.
